7:07 pm
they will wrap up tomorrow and leaves a state's rebuttal and then maybe into sunday and that is when the jury is expected to stay through the holiday weekend and begin deliberations. >> shep: minutes from now, casey talked today only the second time she has spoken since the trial begin. we'll hear what she has to say. top story at the bottom of the hour. let's get it done, what president obama is saying about raising the debt limit. they may have to cancel vacation plans but some republicans are kljts go the deadline of the 2nd of august. they say we may have more time before the government can't pay the bills. president is talking about his troop drawdown in afghanistan and not war in libya. that came at a news conference. >> he started with the debt limited standoff and he took aim
7:08 pm
at lawmakers for playing another game of beat the clock just like they did with the government shutdown. malea and sasha finish their homework a day ahead of time. they are not waiting the night before. congress can do the same things. they are in one week and they are out one week. then they are saying obama has got -- you need to be here. >> shep: he predicted that republicans will have to back down on their demands to keep tax raises off the table -- or tax hikes i should say. he accusing leaders of protecting tax breaks at the wealthy at the expense of the poor and middle-class. mike emanuel is sorting it out. republicans were sparring before the news conference. >> reporter: they say increasing taxes will hurt job creation.

7:10 pm
libya and whether he needs authorization from congress? >> he said get real. there are no american casualties or u.s. troops on the ground. take a listen. >> we have engaged in a limited operation to help a lot of people. again, one of the worst tyrants in the world. somebody who nobody should want to defend. we should be send outing a unified message that she should step down and give us a fair chance to live their lives without fear. >> reporter: he insists a lot of fight about libya is just politics. >> shep: you asked him about war number one, the one against afghanistan and his drawdown plans? >> that is right. when he laid out his drawdown plan he didn't say victory so on behalf 6 the troops i asked him about victory. this comes after a high profile
7:11 pm
attack yesterday at the intercontinental hotel in kabul where 11 people were killed. the president said afghanistan is still a dangerous place, but the trend is improving. take a listen? >> that doesn't mean there is not going to be events like this potentially taking place. that will probably go on for some time. our work is not done. >> reporter: so he says the american mission in afghanistan has been successful but he is not yet to declare victory. a new poll from fox news suggests president obama's approval rating, he was at 46%. congress also lost ground, if that is possible. just 20% of registered voters say they approve of the job our lawmakers are doing. today a government panel made an earth shat ordering decision about a best selling
7:12 pm
cancer drug, one of thousands of women are using right now. patients should no longer use it to treat breast cancer. we'll have the details and all those taking the drug are supposed to do now. that is coming up. plus the mob boss, whitey bolcer comes to court and the lawyers are plenty steamed. just ahead, why the defense claims the government is playing with the judicial process by dropping charges. a lot of news on a wednesday, tonight on the fox report. i will send this to shelley. yeah.

7:14 pm
so that i can work one-on-one with you. it's your green line. but i'll be there every step of the way. call or come in and talk with us today. >> shep: an enormously controversial decision on a cancer drug that many women have called the difference between life and death. just hours ago fda determined that doctors should no longer use avastin to treat breast cancer. it's been on the market for about seven years now. but last december the fda proposed revoking it as a breast
7:15 pm
cancer treatment. now, the panel has upheld that decision. so what does that mean? doctors can still prescribe it but insurers nay not cover the $8,000 a month price tag. this comes after a rare public hearing in which women pleaded with the feds to change their minds to allow what they say is a life saving drug. >> at the time of my diagnosis, i had 14 tumors in my liver and two in my spine. i was in excruciating pain. after three months of avastin, the tumors in my body had decreased in size by nearly 50% of the metabolic activity was severely reduced. i'm not just a static. i don't want to become one. >> shep: but they determined that it's not safe and isn't effective when it comes to treating breast cancer. the women disagree. trace gallagher disagree and
7:16 pm
17,000 women took that drug today. what are they supposed to do now? >> assuming that fda is to pull the approval it doesn't mean the 17,000 women would automatically have to pay for the drug out of pocket. that is because the american cancer society many of the reference manuals that is used by insurance companies including medicare would still list avastin as a drug for breast cancer. many doctors have already vowed to keep using it and keep prescribing it. here is one. listen. >> i've seen several patients quite dramatically. we don't have an infinite number of therapies for these patients but every therapy is important. my opinion, this is therapy that should be available to these patients. >> reporter: experts warn that many insurance companies could wo fight to stop paying the
7:17 pm
$90,000 bill. >> shep: that can't be the last word. >> reporter: for now, it is, the problem here is the maker of avastin could lose about a billion dollars a year. it depends on what the fda does next month. but they will conduct more studies to prove the effectiveness but they take several years. the company released a statement we are very disappointed by the recommends and we hope the commissioner does not remove an important medicine with women with this incurable disease with too few treatment options. they make a final decision on july totdz. avastin is still okay to use for many other types of cancers. >> shep: thank you. the man accused of shooting gabrielle giffords in the head

7:19 pm
it? >> he did it. >> shep: meanwhile, his court appointed attorney she feared for her client's safety in jail. they have placed him under suicide watch. >> meantime, in boston prosecutors are trying to, quote gain the system. that from a temporary attorney from the infamous gangster james whitey bolger. they arrested him last week after he spent 16 years on the run. today he was in a boston federal court for an unscheduled hearing. it's still unclear to us why. in a court filing his attorney claims that prosecutors are shopping for judges by seeking to dismiss an extortion indictment in favor of another that accuses him of 19 murders. it's the if the first indictment were dismissed they would assign a new judge that could play into prosecution's favor. he is due back in court for a hearing as well as a request to get a taxpayer funded attorney.

afghans in the next few months in transfer security responsibilities. people like david petraeus that senior officials have touted the structure in places like kabul as a real sign of progress in afghanistan. but this latest attack in kabul is shedding just how weak the security apparatus and across the country really is these days. fighting lasted for more than five hours in kabul yesterday. it begin around 10:00 a.m. at night. insurgents stormed this popular western hotel in kabul. it went on way through the morning, sometime around 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning. it really wrapped up. it also ended when afghan authorities called in help from nato. you saw these u.s. blackhawk helicopters arrive and kill some of the insurgents that were still there and basically hiding in the hotel. this really sheds light how weak the afghan security forces are
7:44 pm
in kabul and across the country and how much they still rely on the u.s. security forces in kabul in and around the country. it sort of sheds light on just how far the afghan security forces have to go before a security transfer can be fully fulfilled in afghanistan. it's one of the thing that the u.s. is eager to begin transferring security responsibility. this attack really highlights how far they have to go before the security apparatus is really up to the task. >> shep: there is new report how much the wars are costing. according to a brown university project, final bill plus the counterterrorism operations could top $4 trillion. that doesn't include the ongoing costs like health care for veterans. they estimate more than 6,000 u.s. service members have died
